Liz Hurley Says *Those* Pics Weren’t Taken By Her Son After All. Her 80-Year-Old Mother Was Actually The Photographer

Shock twist.

Lots of people had lots to say about those pictures of Elizabeth Hurley braving the elements, mainly because of her attire (or lack of) and the fact that it was widely reported that her 18-year-old son was the photographer.

Piers Morgan was so outraged about the pictures that he branded the model, actor and presenter “thirsty and creepy”.

But in a shock twist, Liz has revealed that it wasn’t actually her teenage son behind the camera, but her 80-year-old mother.

The 55-year-old star updated fans on Twitter, writing: “Far be it for me to suggest the tabloids get their facts muddled, but these pics were in fact taken by my 80-year-old mother.”

“Not entirely sure if that puts minds at rest or not,” she added.

We wonder what Piers will have to say now?

After Liz shared the snaps of herself posing in the snow – dressed in a big fluffy cardi and not much else – on Monday, the Good Morning Britain presenter questioned “what she was doing”.

“Yeah, she looks fabulous, but what are you doing Liz?” Piers asked. 

“A bit of snow and you get your kit off. And who took the pictures? Your 19-year-old son, you said, took the pictures? Isn’t that a bit creepy?

“What is all this! It’s what we call in the business ‘thirsty and a bit creepy’.”

Calling out Piers’ hypocrisy, co-host Susanna Reid responded: “You can’t accuse other people of being thirsty when you’re on national television and you have at least two columns and you’re on every single podcast young.”

Piers continued: “You can think two things when you look at it – one, she looks great. Which she does. But also, 55? Getting your 19-year-old son to take pictures of you stripping off in the snow?”

“Sorry,” Susanna interjected. “After women go over 50 are they not allowed to bare any flesh? That’s what happened to Davina McCall! She got trolled.”

“No, Davina didn’t do this,” Piers responded. “Come on, you can think she looks great but come on! You’re 55 – put your clothes on.”

Last year, Liz shared another lockdown look, but on this occasion it was something a little more familiar.

The Austin Powers star raided her wardrobe and posed again in the iconic shiny purple Versace gown she wore to an awards show in 1999.
